Looking for Steam Rads with delivery - Teaneck NJ

Hey all,

I’m looking to buy 2 6 or 7 section steam rads with delivery. Not enough radiation on the first floor and boiler is cycling. Looking for the style as seen in picture

    Any architectural salvage place should have radiators.

    Thx. I’m scared to even see the shipping cost of a cast iron rad. I’ll keep surfing Craig’s.

    That appears to be a 2-column, 38" tall radiator you're looking for.
    Contact John "JohnNY" Cataneo, Master Plumber for Consulting Work
    Or for plumbing in NYC or in NJ.

    Or take his class.

    Replaced a radiator in my living room this summer that was incorrectly replaced at some point in time (we think around 1930). I got a rebuilt unit from Ecorad USA and can vouch for the quality of their work - outstanding! I needed a 3 column, 39" tall, 12 section Rococo model. Shipping was a lot less than i thought it would be. But more important is I bought essentially a "new" radiator. The peace of mind is worth something.

    I would suggest you do a heat loss calculation and then size the radiator to the room before you move forward. Also make sure there is enough wall space where you intend to place it. US Boiler has a very good program on their website. But I also used a 1907 book to verify the results.

    @adambnyc I might have a bunch of them in stock that I’m looking to get rid off.
